Track Name: Nominal American
it was an accident, that's what's been said
it was the bottom of a stairwell in the pink projects
you hear this shit all the time

i'd love to extend the benefit of the doubt, but I just cannot stand to be an optimist or an apologist anymore

they're not the guardians of "what's right", they're the taxmen of the party line

protect freedom nominally

the same way i am an american

want to hear some irony? there are trap houses on liberty
what you did isn't so bad, just give us what you got and we'll

collect the receipts and return everything to the way it was before
collect the receipts and return everything until the next time we see you in court

they're not the guardians of "what's right", they're the taxmen of the party line

protect freedom nominally

the same way i am an american
Track Name: Angels of Death
i disappear, become static in the air
when i hear the news, when i see what they do

holding their heads, pulling the wires from their necks
until there's nothing behind their darting little eyes

they leave them to bleed their history on the ground
their progress up until now

like a burned book, a lost chapter
some new holy war for some spiteful god

i'm told the plan is to save everyone
i can understand, it's the most noble motive

when the president calls in his angels of death
and they fucking miss, we're not so different

they leave them to bleed their history on the ground
their progress up until now

like a burned book, a lost chapter
some big empty plan to keep on keeping on
